In honor of our new Pet Project items, we have a special recipe today: homemade dog treats from Kelsi Windmiller!
We all want our pets to be healthy and happy, so we should try to take care of them just like we try to take care of ourselves. Many pets are fed straight from packaged goods that have been processed and preserved (imagine how you would feel if you ate like that!). Homemade meals and treats are very easy to create — it just takes a little more time than opening a bag of store-bought biscuits. I would like to share with you my peanut butter and hemp seed treat recipe. Dogs love peanut butter and it contains a healthy amount of protein. Hemp seeds add all of the essential amino acids and can help maintain a healthy and shiny coat. So treat that special canine in your life to some healthy homemade dog treats.
Peanut Butter & Hemp Seed Dog Treats
2c Whole Wheat Flour
1/8 c Hemp Seeds
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1c Natural Chunky Peanut Butter
1c Milk or Water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine the flour, baking powder, and hemp seeds in a mixing bowl. In another bowl, combine the milk and peanut butter with an electric mixer. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the milk and peanut butter until thick dough forms. Remove from bowl and kneed for a few minutes on a lightly floured surface. Roll out the dough to ¼ inch thickness. Cut dough with a cookie cutter or a knife. Bake on a flat baking sheet lined with parchment paper for 15 to 20 minutes depending on the size. Let the treats cool completely before sharing. Store in a covered container for keeping.
